The local scene is developing, these guys like Naveen and Vineet have a wonderful trail map developing. When I started riding there in 2009 most people said its not possible and too dangerous, but then they don’t know what mountain biking has become and the type of terrain we desire. There is a whole lot of terrain to explore on this continent and tyres are getting out there. If you fancy some exploration I would really recommend bringing your bike to the sub continent for a ride. It is like being a kid again where all sensations and situations are new, only this time you are on a great bike and not an 1980’s BMX. Exploration takes months and months before a days riding becomes what you would wish for, once you get there it is bliss.
